Why should I book an eye test? I don't wear glasses or contact lenses and I can see fine?
If you are currently wearing prescription glasses or contact lenses, an updated script can subtly enhance your sight and show immense changes that in turn will accomodate every day tasks and improve quality of life. The main aspect of an eye test is to determine your prescription for new glasses or contact lenses. Though there is also a lot more to it. Eye health checks can also detect early signs of diseases that may not present symptoms or be seen by the naked eye. By catching this early our optometrist Lily, will be able to create management plans and that will not only benefit your eyes but your overall health or refer you to a specialist for more specific care.
Did you know that along with eye diseases such as glaucoma, cataracts and melanomas in the eye, Lily will also be able to check for general health diseases such as diabetes and high blood pressure?
Lily is also therapeutically endorsed meaning she has additional qualifications to prescribe scheduled medications for the treatment of eye conditions and diseases.
We also see people of all ages! A very common misconception is that someone is too young to get their eyes checked. When in actual fact the most important time to check children is when they are young. This can prevent future issues such as cognitive and motor learning difficulties and give them the best chance to learn. Lily has also completed her Advanced Children's Vision Certification which gives her a better understanding on how to mange children's vision while keeping their attention and making it an enjoyable experience.
